Why Jenny chose Gold Country & High Sierra

Having moved to Lake Tahoe from England as a decorator, I searched for 3 years for the perect location to re-create the country cottage that reminds me so much of home. With beautiful oak trees, the perfect climate and tranquility, this cottage in the heart of Fair Play is an ideal vacation getaway.

What makes this cottage unique

A completely relaxing and quiet cottage Walking distance to the Winery by the Creek, Iverson's and a local restaurant to name a few. There is a seasonal creek on the property and Perry Creek runs next to the property which adds to the ambience while enjoying some of the award winning wines, from the covered front porch of the cottage.

Great place, location, with all the amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We do VRBOs often and this place was perfect! Location is great and the pub is nearly across the street. All the owners at the wineries we visited were extremely welcoming and a pleasure to talked to, and all knew of the cottage and most know the owner Jenny. Home is very well cared for and everything was set up perfectly. True pride in ownership! Our family loved the area and home so much that we want to do a yearly trip. Thank you for helping making this trip an unforgettable experience for all of us.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home-fully stocked with towels, dishes, everything you need. Lovely outdoors-very restful and quiet. Heavenly beds. Note of caution- Bring everything you need- it's a long way to a store! ( But not to a winery!)

Super nice little home close to many wineries.

  • 5 of 5

Everything we needed was in the kitchen, including some things we should have brought ourselves. Not many vacation homes do that. Comfy furniture, a TV with Netflix. Great mattresses! Nice front porch with view and rockers. Great eating patio off kitchen. Just a great place at a reasonable price.

Lovely place, clean & cozy

  • 4 of 5

The house is lovely and the location charming. House is well furnished and comfortable. Kitchen is well set up although some plastic containers would be helpful. The abundance of outside seating was great and having the barbecue set up was helpful. We very much enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for anyone wanting an out-of-the-way place to stay. One word of advice, the home is not close to town so bring what you need with you.

Perfect location for wine passport weekend

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. We especially loved its proximity to some of our favorite wineries. Toogood, Charles B Mitchell as well as a new favorite, Skinner. The house was comfortable and we enjoyed the outdoor patio and firepit. We walked across the street to the pub for dinner on two occasions. I will definitely rebook this home.
